Hello there. The alternator replacement should call for 2.8 hours replacement time. The radiator needs to be removed and the A/C evacuated and recharged. There may be additional part charges for coolant and Freon. If you would like to have this service done, a certified technician from YourMechanic can perform an alternator replacement at your home or office.
